"The Uprising, the follow-up to Lisa M. Stasse’s super-addictive The Forsaken, doesn’t hit shelves until August 2013. But EW can exclusively reveal the cover today. Here’s what Stasse had to say about the cover: ”I was really excited when I saw the cover for The Uprising. It’s a little different from The Forsaken, but it still has the same mysterious, edgy sci-fi feel. I’m totally in love with Lizzy Bromley’s work. She designed the cover, and a great British artist named Dan Mountford took the photos for it. Much like The Forsaken, there are a lot of hidden secrets in the cover art. It will probably have more resonance for readers once they’ve read the book.”
As for what to expect in The Uprising, Stasse says it’s much more epic than The Forsaken. “I wanted to work on a bigger canvas, so this time around, the rebels travel the globe in their effort to recapture Prison Island Alpha, free their friends, and uncover the mysteries that haunt them so much. There are new tribes, new rebel bases, new battles, new creepy machines—and a bunch of plot twists too. Alenna gets tested in every way possible, and some of the people she trusts and loves the most turn out to have their own agendas and terrifying secrets.”
Are you excited about The Uprising? And who do you think the guy  is on the cover: Liam or David? "

A thought-provoking and exciting start to a riveting new dystopian trilogy.

As an obedient orphan of the U.N.A. (the super-country that was once Mexico, the U.S., and Canada), Alenna learned at an early age to blend in and be quiet—having your parents taken by the police will do that to a girl. But Alenna can’t help but stand out when she fails a test that all sixteen-year-olds have to take: The test says she has a high capacity for brutal violence, and so she is sent to The Wheel, an island where all would-be criminals end up. 

The life expectancy of prisoners on The Wheel is just two years, but with dirty, violent, and chaotic conditions, the time seems a lot longer as Alenna is forced to deal with civil wars for land ownership and machines that snatch kids out of their makeshift homes. Desperate, she and the other prisoners concoct a potentially fatal plan to flee the island. Survival may seem impossible, but Alenna is determined to achieve it anyway. 
(formerly titled The Wheel)

Fast, brutal, endlessly fascinating. Warning: do not get used to any environment or character. Odds are, the wheel tear them apart. I simply cannot wait to see where the story picks up. Sooo many questions, totally paranoid about every ones agenda.
